Description

Join the Garden City Collection team at our Study Centre to discover material and artefacts from the Parker Collection, and learn how we manage the Collection.

An event alongside the Barry Parker: Architecture for All exhibition at Broadway Studio & Gallery, which explores the life and work of Barry Parker (1867-1947), architect of the world’s first Garden City and a key figure to the Arts & Crafts movement. Parker believed passionately that architecture could change lives – the exhibition will consider his ideology of equality, of utilising sunlight and his harmonious approach to design, confirming Parker’s status as one of the most important British architects of the twentieth century.
